There sure is. 8 mile is a road and it's one of the boarders of Detroit. It's real and the places in the movie are really here in the Big D. Once you hit the hood on 8 mile, you know it. It's not the best area that's for sure. Full of gangs and hookers and cool stuff like that.

Oh yeah, 8 mile is about what 75+ miles long if not longer!!

When you're in town, we can take you to the trailer park from the movie!! But we won't be able to stop and will have to bring Tinman for both brother protection and gun protection....

I really didn't care for 8 mile. I saw it with gas when it came out. It was about nothing. I didn't get anything from it. People say it was inspiring. It inspired me to what my 8 bucks back that I paid for the ticket.

I know your wife knew this answer. You need to talk to her more often and find these things out. I knew this answer.

Matt you know that you like Usher... I think that you even like 8 mile... You know the words to the Usher songs and I think I even heard you rappin at work the other night... See I knew that you would see the light and see that rap music is awesome and you would turn from the rock music that you currently listen to
